Subject[PATCH 0/2] markup_oops.pl and GDB: Let GDB can handle kernel oops stack message
Hi,

I make a patch in http://lkml.org/lkml/2010/1/3/28 to let kernel show
special stack message and convert it to core file when kernel die.
But it need change too much part and other thing make a lot of people
didn't like it.

So I make a patch for markup_oops.pl to make it can convert the oops
message to GDB command.
And make a patch for GDB to add a new target empty which level is same
with corelow target. It can save the memory and reg operation command's
value and send it to GDB as the inferior's value. Then GDB can parse the
oops message directly.

The oops didn't show all the stack message, because it just show
"kstack_depth_to_print" values. To show all the stack value, you need
add kernel commandline "kstack=4096". Because this part have check:
if (kstack_end(stack))
break;
So set kstack_depth_to_print to big number will not affect anything.
For example:
Add "kstack=4096" to kernel commandline. Get the oops message and save
it to a file.

cat ~/tmp/amd64 | perl ./scripts/markup_oops.pl -g -c x86_64- -m
~/tmp/e.ko ~/tmp/vmlinux > ./gc
This line parse the oops message from ~/tmp/amd64 to file ./gc.
gdb -x ./gc
add symbol table from file
"../common_pc_64.glibc_std.standard/export/dist/e.ko" at
